Once or twice a year I’ll put myself on a self imposed nail polish ban. During this time I don’t allow myself to buy any polish, I’ll just look at other bloggers swatches longingly and imagine what I could do with that particular shade. During my most recent ban I saw a few posts by some of my favorite bloggers talking about Sephora’s new Formula X polishes. I have to say, I was impressed with the collection. I headed down to Sephora, just to take a look, and fell in love with the colors and finishes.
Luckily for me, I have a very supportive husband. He supports my nail polish addiction, I support his Pan Am memorabilia collection. Come Valentine’s Day, I was lucky enough to receive The Twenty-Two Sephora Formula X collection. The collection is full of gorgeous pastels, bright neons, a couple of metallic shades, and interesting top coats.
I’ve already tried a few of the shades and I love the formula. The polishes apply smoothly and have really good coverage. At the moment I’m wearing Unmistakable on my toes and I love it. It’s a pastel light blue color and unlike any other polishes that I already own. The only downside with this particular collection is the lack of glitter. I’m a glitter addict and was a little saddened to see there wasn’t any included in this set.
If you are thinking of trying these polishes I highly recommend them. Over the next few months I’ll be using them to create more designs and will let you know my thoughts and share swatches.
